The month of December is now on record as being the second month with the most infections since the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic back in March.
As of Tuesday, December 29, there have been 1,483 new positive Covid-19 cases in our community.
Only the month of July has had more positive cases with 1,549.
It’s highly probable that with 2 days left in the counting process, December will become the most infectious month, surpassing the month of July.
Officials are gravely concerned that the month of January could see an increase in positive cases due to the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.
Currently, Officials have tested 35,392 people or about 60.7 percent of the entire Maverick County population. Of those, 28,885 have come back negative.
There have been 6,393 people infected with 5,414 recovered.
There are 818 active cases.
37 people are hospitalized with 8 on ventilators.
